June 11, 2008 at the U.S. National Archives in Washington D.C.

I recently sat on a panel organized by the U.S. National Archives that discussed the journey of successful women immigrant entrepreneurs in America. The event was held in the William McGowan Theatre at the U.S. National Archives in Washington D.C. Until I was invited for this event, I had no idea that the U.S. federal government organized such interesting programs and invited participation of business leaders and entrepreneurs to share their views and thoughts and exchange ideas with the audience in such a fashion.

The emcee for the program was Maureen Bunyan, TV anchor of the ABC news affiliate in Washington D.C. It was a lively discussion that helped many to see that immigrants work hard, take nothing for granted, and want to succeed in this great country of opportunities, more than many Americans!

I feel so honored to be able to share my views and to be an immigrant of Indian origin, who can add to the richness and diversity of this great nation of immigrants. What is even more exciting for me is the feeling that we at the Murthy Law Firm can help thousands of individuals each year to realize their American dream of living and working in this great country and that we are a part of that dream. We help American employers to become more successful in attracting and retaining the best and brightest from around the world. Our work truly feels like the work of missionaries and we thank every single person who has used our services. We are so honored and privileged to work with you. Events like this one at the National Archives, which preserves documentation on immigrants to this nation, remind me of these important issues, which are at the heart of what we do every day.

I will be speaking at the Minority Awards for the Baltimore Business Journal on June 19, 2008.
